Renfrew

This historic town has a long and fascinating history, stretching back to the town’s founding in the 12th century, with historic landmarks and buildings abundant in the area. The town lies next to the ebbing and flowing River Clyde, a short distance from both the bustling city of Glasgow and the delightful town of Paisley. This ideal location offers visitors the option to travel into the splendour of the surrounding countryside, towns and villages, as well as some of the larger, nearby cities for the day. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is also within driving distance and is ideal for those wanting to do some walking, hiking or cycling amidst the spectacular Scottish scenery.

  • Long, fascinating history
  • Close to Glasgow
